The Arabs, Turks, Afghans and the Mughals dominated the political scene of India for centuries. All the rulers witnessed great revolutions but they refused to be absorbed in the social structure of Hindu society. Religious persecution and planting of Muslim standards was the aim of the rulers. These facts were realised by Akbar. When he became emperor he wanted to unite the people of Hindustan and to be regarded by his subjects as a protecting father. This book discusses briefly about the life of Akbar, who firmly established Mughal rule in India, and also deals with him as a husband, a father, an administrator, a soldier and a man, who despite of a religious education abounding in the inculcation of hostility to all who differed from Islam, gave his intellect the freest course and based his conduct on the teachings of his intellect.
